    • “We stayed here with father in law (85 yr old) and dog the apartment is just as described very clean and modern. The only issue we had was that when booking the description does not mention that there are stairs both from the car park and up to the 2nd floor apartment. We only found this out when directions were emailed after we'd booked. We were concerned that it could be a problem due to my father in law being elderly thankfully he managed ok however our elderly dog struggled ! I think the stairs should be clearly stated in description prior to booking. There are signs asking residents to be quiet between 11-7 am which was adhered to however thoughtless people walking past in early hours were very noisy ! I would recommend this apartment as apart from stairs it was a lovely apartment very clean and well maintained”
